AIHP Administrative Director Dennis Birke, AIHP Assistant Director Greg Bond, and AIHP Curator Beth Fisher presented Dr. Higby with a poster containing cover images from the 111 editions of Pharmacy in History published during Higby’s tenure as the journal’s editor-in-chief. Another retirement gift—an iPad tablet—was presented on behalf of AIHP’s Board of Directors, AIHP’s staff, and members of the UW Pharmacy School’s faculty and staff.
In his remarks, AIHP President William Zellmer noted that he had chaired the AIHP search committee that had recommended hiring Higby as the Institute’s Executive Director. Zellmer further stated:
“Greg Higby, on behalf of Institute members, thank you, and congratulations on a job exceptionally well done. As T. S. Eliot wrote, ‘… to make an end is to make a beginning.’ We wish you happiness and fulfillment in in your new beginning.”
Dr. Higby officially retires on December 31. However, he plans to continue working at the Institute on a part-time basis with the title of Fischelis Scholar.
